Fun Fact

This species has shown up various times in the fossil record, with the earliest presence 2–2.5 million years old (from Sarasota, Florida) * To constuct their nests, Yellow-crowned Night-Herons typically break off dead twigs and branches directly from vegetation. In some colonies, the species will completely strip trees of their twigs.
